GRATITUDE AND THANKS TO OUR FESTIVAL PARTNERS

With the glow of the 2018 Bloomington Early Music Festival still present, we’re so deeply grateful to the many musicians who performed this year (more than 130 of them, a number of whom are listed here: http://www.blemf.org/performers.html,) providing the community and the world a snapshot of the astounding emerging talent in early music. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!!!
